Must is taking it a bit too far. The average vehicle operator cannot successfully pull his/her car out of a spin, does not take care to maintian assured clear distance, does not obey speed limits, and gets into at least one major vehicle accident in their driving lifetimes.
So you're advocating that we add a whole new impact surface to the equation...the ground...because it's cool? I suggest you visit Angola for a tattoo and piercing session amidst a Marburg virus outbreak. Tattoos and piercings are cool too right?
We will not even see hover cars w/in the next 20 years because of the introduction of a new impact surface, let alone ultralight pseudo air-cars.
Do I think it would be neat? Sure. Do I think that the average car driver is sufficiently responsible to operate one? Hell no. Teach drivers to drive before you make them fly.

You can clearly see history of the 1970s "oil crisis," as it has been proven to be a total fraud, a "phoney gas crisis." So far they are simply raising prices gradually, while reducing refining capacity. There is enough oil in Alaska to run the United States for 100 years and more. So consider the Diamond cartel, and why a low grade semi precious stone is sold for thousands of dollars due to total control of the market. 100 dollar a barrel Oil is the product of a planned scarcity, as well as a controlled media.
Peak Oil is corporate rubbish.
